Avellum advised on IBRD-supported financing for Ukraine
AVELLUM acted as the Ukrainian legal counsel to the Ministry of Finance of Ukraine in connection with two syndicated EUR-denominated facilities arranged by Deutsche Bank in December 2018 and March 2019 for the total amount equivalent to approximately USD1 billion.
Both facilities benefited from a policy-based guarantee from the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development.
The IBRD guarantee allowed for attractive commercial terms, including the 4.5-year grace period for a substantial portion of the financing.
The AVELLUM team was led by senior partner Glib Bondar, with support from associates Oleg Krainskyi, Anastasiya Voronova, and Oleksandra Kupriichuk.
